As part of their contributions to cushion the excruciating effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on vulnerable persons in Nigeria, Nigerian citizens in the United States of America under the aegis of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation America (NIDOA), have distributed variety of food items to residents of three communities in Lagos State.

NIDO America through its implementing partner, Organisation of Women in International Trade (OWIT) Nigeria, recently visited Ajegunle, Mile 12 and Orisunmibare communities of Lagos and handed out food items worth over N1 million to beneficiaries.

A total of 202 beneficiaries were captured at the three locations and each went home with four packs containing some kilograms of rice, garri, beans as well as other staple items.

The project was carried out under the US-based organisation’s WeCare Project, which is its humanitarian arm.

Speaking to THISDAY during the distribution exercise at Orisunmibare, Ayobo, Lagos, the Director of Strategy and Programmes, OWIT Nigeria, Mr. Kennie Adenugba, said OWIT partnered NIDO America to give palliative and support to the less-privileged and vulnerable in the society.

“So far it has been a good run for everybody and we believe that the people have actually gone home happy or rather happier than they came here this morning. So we trust that going forward, the partnership between the two organisations will become stronger and at the same time NIDO America will also be encouraged to actually put funding behind charity work across Nigeria.

“We shared five kilogrammes of rice, three kilogrammes of beans, three kilogrammes of garri, and then we did full pack of maggi seasoning (100 cubes in one), we did Indomie Noodles as well as a bottle of oil. So that’s what we actually gave them. We believe that these are items that would help them,” Adenugba added.

He, however, added that the partnership between NIDO America and OWIT Nigeria was coming out stronger in the community care project, saying, “they call it ‘WeCare’ because they are saying that they care for the people. So it is the WeCare project that we are actually here for on behalf of NIDO America US and OWIT Nigeria in partnership.
